wouldn't that be 15w-40 "Rotella for diesels"? They make regular gas engine 15w-40 also. I think it has more detergents for gas engines.

Doesn't have to be rotella. I get 15w40 heavy duty diesel oil at Rural King for $30 per 5 gallon bucket. rotella is $65.

But the oil does NEED to be labeled for Diesel. cadillackid didn't mention the part that there were different oils for diesel and gas engines...both 15w-40. I just wanted to make sure that Bus 102 was aware of the difference.

Folding camper steps won't reach the distance from the sill to the ground. Try fabbing a boarding ladder from an older step ladder.

Sad news today I tried to crank the bus for the first time and it didn't even turn over. I have two batteries. If I can get help of how they hook up right I will really appreciate it

I am not sure exactly what your question is.

Most full sized school buses had two 8D batteries wired together (parallel) with positive and positive wired together and negative and negative wired together.

Sometimes, in older equipment, you may find someone has wired batteries in series. In order to get 12-vdc out of 6-vdc batteries you need to wire the batteries in a series with positive on battery one connected to negative on battery two and negative on battery one connected to positive on battery two.
